Like Hercules himself with his twelve labours, so too have you completed an epic task by watching all seven episodes of The Book of Boba Fett. But after you’re done celebrating with some fine mead, or visiting Oba Diah — the beautiful homeworld of the Pyke Syndicate — you might be wondering: what is the next Star Wars show after The Book of Boba Fett?
Good question, friend, and the short answer is we actually don’t know for sure (you can stop reading now if you want). Disney+ and Lucasfilm have been surprisingly cagey about whatever else is coming down the Pyke (sorry, pike) for their franchise, though we do have some general guesses and ideas. If you want a complete list of every new Disney+ Star Wars show, we’ve got that. But if you’re simply wondering what’s next, here are a few questions of our own, and whatever info we may have:
WHEN IS KENOBI COMING OUT? WHAT IS THE OBI-WAN KENOBI RELEASE DATE?
The short answer to what is PROBABLY the next Star Wars show after The Book of Boba Fett is Obi-Wan Kenobi, the series starring Ewan McGregor that takes place after the prequel trilogy. Though, like everything else on this list we don’t know for sure, recently a Disney+ exec tweeted and deleted that “our very own Obi-Wan will be saying ‘hello, there’… on Disney+ May 2022.” Though that same exec later said he was talking about an Obi-Wan comic book that was revealed by Marvel, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that their sources placed the series in May, as well.
It is reasonable to think that May 4, 2022, may be the release date of something Star Wars, since that’s the official Star Wars holiday (“May the Fourth be with you”… Get it?), but whether we’ll get Kenobi coming out on that date, or a trailer, we’ll have to wait and see. Still, this seems most likely to be next out of the gate, regardless of when it’s actually premiering.
WHEN IS ANDOR COMING OUT? WHAT IS THE ANDOR RELEASE DATE?
Here, things get murkier than the line between the Jedi and the Sith, but after Kenobi is potentially Andor, starring Diego Luna as his character from Rogue One. The series has already filmed, and has even seemingly (unofficially) confirmed a second season, thanks to fellow star Stellan Skarsgård. According to the Disney+ site, the series is due to premiere in 2022. So if Kenobi does premiere some time in May (or even June or July), expect Andor to be late Summer the earliest, though more likely post-Labor Day.
WHAT IS THE MANDALORIAN SEASON 3 RELEASE DATE? WHEN CAN I WATCH THE MANDALORIAN SEASON 3 EPISODE 1?
If I was being a jerk, I would note that you already watched the first two episodes of The Mandalorian Season 3, and The Mandalorian Season 3 Episode 1 release date was January 26, 2022… It just aired as the fifth episode of The Book of Boba Fett. But whatever you think about the weird roll-out schedule of Book of Boba Fett, The Mandalorian Season 3 was already filming late last year. It would be no great surprise if the Mandalorian Season 3 premieres in December, 2022; just like the first two seasons, and Book of Boba Fett. Though, like everything here, that is TBA.
WHAT ABOUT THE AHSOKA SERIES? WHAT IS THE AHSOKA RELEASE DATE?
Now we’re getting pretty far out. Though Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka Tano has appeared on both The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, her solo show isn’t supposed to start production until later this year. Meaning our best guess as to the Ahsoka release date is 2023.
WHEN WILL THE PELI MOTTO SERIES BE RELEASED?
One can only dream.
